My daughter was 2-years-old when I started sarah + abraham, working during nap times and late at night when the kids were in bed. Now it’s 11 years later, and she loves helping me out with product photography and designing new products (and she’s much better at both of those things than I am)!
I took this photo of my daughter getting on a school bus a few years ago. It was actually a shuttle bus for a local festival that we just happened to come across while photographing my new tote bags. There was no one around, so she pretended to be getting on the bus for some “back to school” photos.
I love looking back on photos of my kids modeling Sarah + Abraham products over the years!
The first time I ordered a sample place mat I wrote on it with an Expo dry erase marker and then tried wiping it off with a damp paper towel, and the marker wouldn’t come off! I was about to panic when my kids told me that it works better to use a DRY paper towel or Kleenex. I tried that, and it worked perfectly. Whew!
This is another old photo I recently came across of my daughter demonstrating a personalized handwriting practice place mat for me. Now she’s the one behind the camera, taking product photos and even editing them!⠀
Behind the scenes: gluing notepads and then stamping them with my Sarah + Abraham stamp from PSA Essentials.⠀
I just came across this photo of my daughter at the library several years ago with her personalized library tote bag. It’s so fun for me to look back on photos of my kids modeling Sarah + Abraham products over the years!
Photographing place mats is so hard, mostly because of the glare on the lamination. Here I am standing on a step stool to get high enough above the place mats to cut down on the glare.
Here’s a peek behind the scenes… using the heat press to make a personalized canvas tote bag.
Here’s another peek behind the scenes at sarah + abraham… printing decals for personalized canvas tote bags featuring customizable ballet and gymnastics designs.
Here’s another sneak peek behind the scenes… once I’ve affixed a decal to a personalized tote bag using the heat press, I remove the heat transfer material, and the tote bag is finished.
